Lets say someone comes out and offers NY $40M plus over 4 years and we decide he is not worth it. We can always start Crawford, and try and find a serviceable back up, along with Mason and Mack.
But what if we can get Michael Redd on a one year contract?
Clearly, it does not make any sense to give a guy with significant knee injuries a long term contract, and he most likely does not fit into any long term plans. But assuming he is healthy and can still shoot, he could be exactly the court spacing 2 the Wiz need. He could help mentor Crawford, provide veteran leadership, and fill the scoring void left by NY.
Redd might do it because he will have a chance to start and play next to a star PG who will help him restore his image. He is a career 38% shooter, and Wall should be able to give him open looks. Let wall create, and Redd finish. I highly doubt he gets a big offer from anyone, so if he is signing a one year deal, he is going to look for the right fit to prove he can stay healthy and try and get another contract.
If Redd has lost his legs, can't stay healthy, or find his shot (last two years have been well below his career average), we just move on.
